This is my second attempt at a hold (the first was unpublished except in architecture, and was lost when my computer crashed irretrievably). But it is my first attempt within TCB.

It should be fairly simple, to fill in an hour or two you might have spare. There's no music and only one scripted character... but I've played it through, it works, and it's not too tedious (IMHO!!).

Please, enjoy, try it, make comments. Dependant on the comments I may or may not submit it as an actual hold.

Played through to 2nd level.

Quick comments (more detailed later, once I've got a bit further)

- Some interesting ideas. Funny use for invisibility and spiders.
- Aesthetically very nice
- The place of no return is cool. Maybe make the speech a cutscene, then exit?

- Needs more checkpoints, especially in the mud clearing and trapdoor puzzles.
- Entrance can be done without the mimic
- I'd say that big piles of mud you have to clear with black door as an exit is a no-no. I ended up having to do it twice.
Why not a monster behind the black door, with a green door as an exit, so you only ever have to do it once?
